As a scientist doing theoretical learn in gravitational physics and quantum cosmology, i discovered Dr. Craig's considerate e-book hugely fascinating. He has rigorously given arguments protecting numerous diverse viewpoints for every of the numerous concerns approximately time that he discusses, by way of opinions within which he emphasizes his personal opinion. studying Time and Eternity has compelled me to boost larger arguments for my very own critiques (which range significantly from Craig's).... i'm yes that Time and Eternity also will stimulate your pondering this attention-grabbing topic and your appreciation for the God who created time as a part of the brilliant universe He has given us.
